Gender responsive budgeting (GRB) is a means of integrating a gender perspective into all steps of the budget process—planning, drafting, implementing and evaluating—so as to ensure that budget policies take into consideration the gender issues in society and neither directly nor indirectly discriminate against either women or men. Governments, policy makers, researchers and community groups all have an interest in GRB as a strategy for promoting gender equality, because it is through budgets that policies and programmes are taken beyond paper promises and put into practice (Sharp, 2004).
